Sailor From Avery, California Continues 75 Years Of Seabee Tradition

Port Hueneme, CA...We Build, We Fight” has been the motto of the U. S. Navy’s Construction Force, known as the “Seabees”, for the past 75 years. Avery, California native and Bret Harte High School graduate, Petty Officer 1st Class Reginald Cyr, builds and fights around the world as a member of a naval construction battalion center located in Port Hueneme, California.



Cyr works as a builder in the Navy.

“My job consists of providing humanitarian disaster relief and basic construction, including rough and finish framing, as well as concrete and masonry work,” said Cyr.

The jobs of some of the Seabees today have remained unchanged since World War II, when the Seabees paved the 10,000-mile road to victory for the allies in the Pacific and in Europe, according to Lara Godbille, director of the U. S. Navy Seabee Museum.

“The things I like most is the opportunity to travel to many different places, the camaraderie within the Seabee community and providing construction support,” said Cyr.

For the past 75 years Seabees have served in all American conflicts. They have also supported humanitarian efforts using their construction skills to help communities around the world following earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters.

“I am proud of the hard work that Seabees do every day,” said Rear Adm. Bret Muilenburg, commander, Naval Facilities Engineering Command. “Their support to the Navy and Marine Corps mission is immeasurable, and we look forward to the next seven decades of service.”

Seabees around the world will take part in a year-long celebration in 2017 to commemorate the group’s 75-year anniversary. The theme of the celebration is “Built on History, Constructing the Future.”

"Seabees deploy around the world providing expert expeditionary construction support on land and under the sea, for the Navy and Marine Corps, in war, humanitarian crisis and peace," said Capt. Mike Saum, commodore, Naval Construction Group (NCG) 1. "Seabee resiliency, skill, and resolution under hostile and rough conditions prove our motto 'We Build, We Fight.' The Seabee patch we wear on our uniform signifies to the warfighter and civilian alike that they're in good hands."

Serving in the U.S. Navy has allowed Cyr to continue learning about himself and the legacy he wants to leave to future Seabees.

“For me, it's an honor to serve in the military,” said Cyr. “My grandfather was in the military and I wanted to follow in his footsteps. To be a Seabee is special. When I found out what they do, I was very intrigued because I've always had a passion for construction.”
